Michael Jackson's father has missed out on the chance of filing a wrongful death lawsuit against his son's physician on the anniversary of the King of Pop's death - because of a mistake in the paperwork.
Joe Jackson's lawyer Brian Oxman filed documents against Dr. Conrad Murray in federal court on Friday (25Jun10), seeking unspecified damages in connection with his son's death.
But the suit was returned because or an error.
It will now have to be refiled, according to TMZ.com.
In the complaint, Joe Jackson alleges Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and emergency service operatives who were trying to save Michael's life.]
Murray is accused of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol to the pop star a year ago (25Jun09). He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
Joe Jackson marked the anniversary of his son's death in Cleveland, Ohio. His wife Katherine unveiled a statue to the King of Pop in the family's native Gary, Indiana, and siblings Janet, Randy, Tito and Jermaine joined fans at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California, where Michael is buried.
